Can You Case it? Design Team - Sketch Challenge CYCI #71

Happy Sunday!  The start of the holiday weekend has been going great and ready to enjoy two more days.  I know this may shock you but I have another race this morning (I know, after this one there really is a break for awhile, but I couldn’t pass up this opportunity so we’ll see how today goes, at least it’s cooler than last Sunday!  For this weeks Can You Case It? Sketch challenge we were given a color challenge to use at least two of the 2013-2015 In Colors (they will be retiring on June 2) along with gold, and you know my love of bling so this was fun to see what I could come up with, I also used LOTS of retiring products in this card, just because I can!

I started with Baked Brown Sugar cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Pistachio Pudding cardstock that I embossed with the Big Shot and the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder (this was one of the first embossing folders we ever came out with and I love it and crying inside that it’s retiring (thankfully I not only have mine but a backup so I’ll be polka dot crazy as long as I want!!)  Next I added a piece of Lullaby Designer Series Paper (it’s great using DSP for more than the presented theme) and matted it with Hello Honey cardstock.  I wrapped a piece of Coastal Cabana Thick Baker’s Twine around the DSP layer for fun.

For the main stamped image I used the Bootiful Occasions stamp set and stamped the boot in Baked Brown Sugar ink on Whisper White cardstock and colored it in with Stampin’ Write Markers before cutting it out with the Big Shot and the Label Collection Framelits (also retiring).  I cut a mat for the stamped image using the same framelits and some Gold Foil Cardstock and then embossed it with the Fancy Fans Embossing Folder.  The final touch was to add the greeting; it’s stamped on So Saffron cardstock and punched out with the Large Oval Punch and then matted with Baked Brown Sugar cardstock and the Scalloped Oval Punch. 

I love the colors in this card, these have been some of my favorite in colors as a set and are sad to say goodbye but we have some fun new one’s coming that we will love just as much. Make sure to check out the other design team creations for further inspiration and then come play along, we love to see what others create.
